Truth and love are frequently discussed in our world, but seldom practiced. The Apostle John had seen truth and love firsthand – he had been with Jesus. During the first two centuries, the gospel was taken from place to place by travelling evangelists and teachers. Believers customarily took these missionaries into their homes, and gave them provisions for their journey when they departed. John therefore wrote to urge continued discernment in truth and love.
Truth and love are vital to the Christian and are inseparable in the Christian life. John says to follow the truth and obey God; Watch out for false leaders; Love God and each other. This book will only take a few minutes to read, but its message will last a lifetime.
